OAM Customer Authentication Plugin Clarification

(Doc ID 2323543.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Access Manager - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Can you provide an example of such a "response plugin" (that assumes that id and authen are already done)?

This page:

https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27559_01/dev.1112/e27134/authnapi.htm#AIDEV193 

Talks about types of plugins, and in particular, says:

 

"Plug-ins on the OAM Server are part of a custom authentication scheme. Different types of plug-ins can be used for:

User Identity Mapping

Plug-ins can add functionality to handle with forms of user input not in the form of a log-in username. Fingerprints, a series of security questions, and other methods can be used. The plug-in translates these inputs and checks them against the database.

User Authentication

Responses (not provided out-of-the-box) might be needed when authenticating the user. Custom plug-ins can fulfill this need.

Custom Responses

Custom plug-ins can be used for responses and how these responses interact with the rest of the system.

Other types of plug-ins are also supported."

 

Notice the "Custom plug-ins can be used for responses and how these responses interact with the rest of the system", so that is probably the type of plugin that we will need.

 

However, you cannot find an example of such a plugin. The examples found in docs, etc. all include authentication and also seem to ASSUME that the plugins either are doing "identification" or "authentication".

In your case, you are looking for a "response plugin" similar to that mentioned above, where you can add to each of the authentication modules that you have configured in the OAM configuration.
